AUSTIN, Texas, May 11, 2021 – Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), the leading expert in wireless transport solutions, today announced that Union Wireless, a telecommunications service provider and recipient of awards from the Connect America Fund (CAF II), USDA Re-Connect, and the FCC Rural Development Opportunity Fund (RDOF), has selected Aviat all-outdoor WTM radio systems to increase backhaul capacity and extend its network. Union Wireless currently serves southern Wyoming and portions of Colorado, Utah, and Idaho, and is purchasing the Aviat systems through the Aviat Store.

Their support is also exceptional and available whenever we need it, and buying online from the Aviat Store helps us plan our installs more efficiently, reduces our time-to-market, and lowers our costs.”

“For residents and businesses in rural areas, access to high speed broadband is the gateway to education, telehealth, entertainment, and economic growth,” said Peter Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer, Aviat Networks. “Our suite of industry-leading systems, software services, and the Aviat Store uniquely position us as a preferred supplier to service providers like Union Wireless. We are honored to partner with Union Wireless, and we are committed to continue to meet the performance, capacity, and high-value requirements of our customers throughout the world.”
